Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500
Yahoo: Top 30 Drivers
Yahoo / Fox / NASCAR: Quick Picks
Qualifying and practice for Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 are in the books, but before the green flag flies, it's time to build some winning DFS NASCAR lineups.
Unlike last weekend at Daytona when it was all about finding drivers starting at the back who could survive the wrecks, it is going to require a much more balanced approach to cash on Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
The place differential category is still going have some value, especially when it comes to finding cheaper options. However, the laps led and fastest laps run categories deserve even more attention, and you are going to want to anchor your lineups with a couple of big names.
Even with NASCAR's new stage format, there is a good chance that one or two drivers are going to lead a bulk of the laps. Having at least one of these drivers on your roster is going to be a must if you plan on winning big.
Top Tournament Plays
Kyle Busch ($10,400)
While Kevin Harvick is my favorite to be the top scorer, I also expect him to be a very popular play. However, Busch also starts near the front, and he has an excellent record at Atlanta. He could easily end up winning the dominator categories, and if you're fading Harvick in GPPs, Busch is one of the top alternatives.
Chase Elliott ($9,300)
He made an immediate splash at Atlanta last year, finishing in the Top 10 in his track debut. Meanwhile, he closed the year with a couple of dominant runs at 1.5-mile ovals, and he has shown a ton of speed again this weekend. He is a dark horse to win the dominator categories, and he be could be a great contrarian pick to build around this weekend.
